This specimen is a matrix, largely covered with small quartz crystals that, in turn has clusters of pink smithsonite crystals and loads of gemmy, elongated mimetite crystals on it. Sure some of the mimetite crystals are snapped off but many, many are beautiful and pristine. Some corroded galena here and there. Lots of crystals on top and underside and it is difficult to know which is the display side.
